Brief Answer:
Follow the Advises..

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX, Welcome to HCM,
I've gone through your query and understand your concern..

I've reviewed the image and it seems like urticarial rashes only..

From your description it seems like your allergic to dust particles, so the first advice for you and the baby is to stay away from the dust..use protective face masks while in the surrounding zone..stay in fresh/open air..

Both of You can apply soothing lotion like Lactocalamine and/ aloe vera lotion over the area thoroughly twice daily for next 5-7 days, it'll reduce the symptoms..

You can take Tab LORATADINE 5 mg Once daily for next two days (it's relatively safe during breast feeding, and when taken in such a low dose, quite safe), this should control it (this is only for you)..(you may require a prescription for this from your local physician)..

Please keep an eye on the baby's rash and if you notice progressive increase of rash despite following this, then please report it to the Pediatrician for a detailed check-up without any further delay..

Try to stay in side air conditioning, avoid direct exposure to sunlight for the time being..

Take regular bath (preferably twice daily), this should do it for the time being..

Let me know if there's any further queries..


Take Care
Kind Regards
